    None do it better than New York Mayor Bill De Blasio as he spoke to an eager, filled to capacity, crowd.

    “Here’s the truth, brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. Plenty of money in this city,” the mayor said, flanked by screens with graphs of productivity outpacing compensation. “It’s just in the wrong hands!”

    I here ya brother Bill! There is plenty of money to go round, all we need is for a righteous and fair person like you to redistribute it for us.

    For the record, I scanned the audience behind Bill at the rally. I can also triumphantly gloat that there is an equal ratio of black to brown to white to Islamic mix within the audience. So not only is he a mastermind accountant and righteous judge, I can say with certainty that the only one that can be entrusted with our money, he is all about social equality and justice to boot.

    And to think I've been lied to all these years by conservatives.

    Who knew? All we ever needed or will need is brother Bill.

    For the record, once Bill gets these redistribution powers for himself and those that come after, I'm confident that those that come after will be just as wonderful.

    So close to self-awareness again...

    Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.

    Philippians 2:3-4 In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves. Don’t be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too.

    1 John 3:17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?


    It's amazing to me how so called "Evangelical Christian Conservatives" can preach so well about Christian values in their Sunday church sermons, but those who want to put those fine words into action, are labeled as "socialists" and "godless liberals" by those very same churchgoers.
